Marty,Kelty is not that far from me. lol. I bought my first frontera was a 1993 2.4i and I had that for 4 years and now I own a 1999 2.2 DTI which I bought from another F.O.G member and it is very nice to drive.

I used to be on here many moons ago with a 2.5 Transglobe... but the bug for getting another Fronty hit me again recently when Rifleman came for a visit and I saw his. So yeah, was on the lookout for another one and saw this current one... now it sits outside the house! :)

:lol: Something usually comes up with me. :lol: I did go to last years meet but unfortunately my fronty was not on the road for it,as we had family issues going on at the sametime and still do. Me and the missus was there with my dad in his mitsubishi asx-3. I am going to try even harder this year to have the fronty at this years meet.

Don't hold your breath Martin. I had last year's summer meet all organised, yet I was the only one who bothered to turn up.
I don't know yet if I will be at this years show, as I was so hacked off last year.
Regards, Keith.

1 in every 100 people are Coeliacs.
One of them is me.

We were at last years Scottish meet,granted not with the Frontera but we were still there though,as me & the missus was there with my dad in his Mitsibushi ASX-3 and we have got photo's. Granted it was a very poor turn out last year but I always say in advance,that I maybe there but can not confirm and I never leave this to the last minute,it is sometimes a week in advance. We have genuine reasons at times and it is pure and simple,we have family issues,my mum and dad both had cancer in 2011,my step daughter is in a court battle fighting to get her daughter back and my missus has health issues and last year my frontera was not M.O.T'd.

I think Stu has a good idea,Frontera/Isuzu joint meet sounds like a good idea.


Here are 3 photo's to show that me & the missus was there last year:-

This photo was taken from behind my dad's Mitsibushi Asx-3:-

If you look closely in the background,you can see my dad's black Mitsibushi ASX-3,behind the white van with the back doors open,just beyond Keith's frontera:-

This is my brother's white Ford Escort convertible:-
